Matthew Barney's River of Fundament in Detroit on June 1

DIA's Friends of Modern and Contemporary Art 5200 Woodward Avenue, Detroit, MI, USA

Matthew Barney returns to Detroit for an exclusive screening of his newest work RIVER OF FUNDAMENT, a radical reinvention of Norman Mailer’s novel Ancient Evenings. In collaboration with composer Jonathan Bepler, Barney combines traditional modes of narrative cinema with filmed elements of performance, sculpture, and opera, reconstructing Mailer’s hypersexual story of Egyptian gods and the seven stages of reincarnation, alongside the rise and fall of the American car industry.

ACT 2 is principally filmed in Detroit – in Delray, on the Belle Isle Bridge, in the Rouge and Detroit Rivers, and at the landing for McLouth Steel in Trenton. More than two hundred members of the local music and art scene contributed to this magnum opus. Join the cast and crew for an exclusive event, five hours and fifty-two minutes long including two intermissions.

The film premiered at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in February and has since been exhibited in Munich, Adelaide, Vienna, and Reykjavik. Ticket prices range from $20 to $150, on sale at the DIA ticketing site and box office.
